Loading .223 with Hornady Lock n Load progressive press
I purchased a new Hornady Lock n Load AP progressive press about 6 weeks and have loaded quite a few .38 special, 9mm, .357 mag, and .40 cal S&W pistol cartridgeswith this loader. This is a really fast loader, once you get the knack of it. My question is to query the readers of The Firearms Forum to find out if anyone has used this progressive loader to load the .223 rifle cartridge or other rifle cartidges. The reason is because the rifle cartridges need lubricant in the full length resizing station and I do not know how the cases will work at the remaining stations such as priming, powder drop, and bullet insertion stations with the sizing lube still on the cases. Some of the videos on Youtube indicate it is best to do the case lubrication, resizing, and priming work on a single stage loader and then do the powder, bullet insertion stages on the progressive loader. I called Hornady and the tech I spoke with told me he performed every stage of reloading rifle cases such as the .223 on the Hornady Lock n Load. Just would like to "pick your brains" for advice on this subject. I thank you in advance for your input.
